Commission proposes €1.4 million from Globalisation Fund for former workers of Alitalia in Italy
The European Commission has proposed to provide Italy with €1.4 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 184 former workers of Alitalia to find new jobs. Most of the redundancies occurred in the region of Lazio.
Italy applied for support from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) following the dismissal of 1 249 workers in Alitalia. These job losses resulted from the decline of the EU´s market share in international passenger air transport between 2008 and 2014.
The measures co-financed by the EGF would help the 184 workers facing the greatest difficulties in finding new jobs by providing them with skill assessment and active job-search support, training, reimbursement of mobility cost to attend training and hiring incentives.
The total estimated cost of the package is €2.3 million, of which the EGF would provide €1.4 million. The remaining €900 000 will be paid by national sources. The proposal now goes to the European Parliament and the EU´s Council of Ministers for approval.
